Hi, its nice to see another user of fpc+vim ;)

My way of detecting .inc and .pp:

% cat .vim/ftdetect/pp.vim
au BufRead,BufNewFile *.pp	set filetype=pascal
au BufRead,BufNewFile *.inc	set filetype=pascal

An advantage is that you do not need to include // vim:ts=4:filetype=pascal at the beginning of each file.
By the way, your way of doing it should work, but the VIM newsgroup is IMHO a better place to ask such a question.
